  • Don’t call Steve Stephens ‘The Facebook Killer’
    We in the media love nicknames for notorious people. Often, these names are associated with a place or thing that has a random connection, like The Boston Strangler, The Green River Killer or The San Bernardino Shooters. This time it's "The Facebook killer," the shorthand description for the actions of Steve Stephens, who killed an […]
  • One last lesson from Don Murray, America’s greatest writing coach
    There were five huge boxes sitting at the loading dock of The Poynter Institute yesterday, waiting for the FedEx truck to pick them up. They are filled with more than 125 file boxes containing the literary effects of Donald M. Murray, in my opinion the most influential writing teacher America has ever known. The precious […]

Grab your smartphone! The Syracuse Press Club is proud to serve as one of the sponsors of the Syracuse Social Media Breakfast's #ShowusCNY project.

In celebration of Mashable's Social Media Day, which takes on June 30, Syracuse Social Media Breakfast is inviting Central New Yorkers to take pictures and short videos of their CNY activities during the weekend of June 29-30 and post their pictures and video, along with a description to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Google+ using the hashtag #ShowUsCNY. Are you taking in the breeze along Skaneateles Lake? Walking the Erie Canal trail? Hanging out downtown or taking a stroll at Green Lakes? We want to see it!

Toni Guidice honored with Professional Standards award
Toni Guidice worked for The Post-Standard for 23 years, spending most of that time making others look good. 

She was the leader of the crew of copy editors who worked every night after the reporters went home, catching errors in their stories before any readers saw them, writing snappy headlines and creating the pages that landed on the doorsteps.

It’s a job that comes without bylines or glamour.

Photographer John Berry recognized with Professional Standards award
John Berry is a bulldog photographer who had a 33-year career at The Post-Standard.

During his career, the newspaper nominated John twice for the Pulitzer Prize award.
